BlackBerry 10 training programme attracts 1,600 punters

RIM is planning to launch its BlackBerry 10 OS later this month.

By CBR Staff Writer

Research In Motion (RIM) said more than 1600 businesses in North America have registered for its BlackBerry 10 training programme.

RIM senior enterprise accounts director Bryan Lee told Reuters, "The company was "very enthused by the engagement and response of our customer base" to a program aimed at persuading them to adopt the BlackBerry 10 devices."

Lee said more than 1,600 customers in North America had registered for its recently launched BlackBerry 10 Ready Program and more than a thousand were actively using the programme.

The Canadian firm said that the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server 10, which runs new devices on company networks, is currently in beta testing with over 130 major corporations and government agencies throughout North America.

The company is planning to launch the long-awaited BlackBerry 10 operating system (OS), along with two new smartphones, including the BlackBerry Z10 (L-Series) and full Qwerty (N-Series), that are powered by the new OS, on 30 January 2013.

RIM has added nearly 15,000 apps to its BlackBerry App World store over the weekend, as part of the firm’s ‘Port-a-thon’ promotion.

The company claims that the new smartphone will be faster and smoother than existing BlackBerry devices and will feature a large number of apps.
